Harmoniously integrated into the city's green belt, the new building composition complements the historic city centre of Toruń. This makes the project a natural part of the city and a new highlight for the future. In concrete terms, the future means that a film studio, a training centre, the actual festival hall, a presentation forum for the film industry, cinemas and an underground film museum will be built here in stages.
Thematically, the crystalline part of the architecture represents the finishing touch of nature. The buildings symbolize six “stones in the park” in order to achieve the union of nature and architecture. The crystalline architecture also means openness and unity, with a view of the city and comfort in the dark of the cinema halls. The choice of materials is also appropriate: glass and coloured metal form a high-contrast surface for the building, the significant geometry of which characterizes the specific location.
The film centre is ambivalent in its use: It functions as a green outdoor space for the population, it is used in everyday life and is a meeting place for international filmmakers once a year. Prof. Dietmar Eberle said: “The project reflects our fundamental approach to designing architecture for everyday life. In an authentic way, a high practical value is brought into harmony with the poetic interpretation of the location and the added cultural value of the building”.
